Facebook is testing a new feature that marks fake news stories by sites such as The Onion with a satirical label, so users can distinguish them from real news stories.
A Facebook representative told BuzzFeed: We are running a small test which shows the text [Satire] in front of links to satirical articles in the related articles unit in News Feed. This is because we received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish satirical articles from others in these units.
Think that people aren't gullible enough to fall for The Onion? You'd be wrong. Literally Unbelievable catalogues incidents of people being outraged by Onion stories.
Here are some of the blogs funniest posts.
